Re: Question for Andreas and Branden
The notion of asking politeness is not reprehensible at all. The question is
who will categorize things as "rude". In Ubuntu I would imagine that anyone
who challenges "management" long enough would be considered "rude" if their
views could not be reconciled. Debian theoretically has no management so you
would need some kind of concensus testing device to determine which people
were being sufficiently irritating.
Technically you could hold a GR to order someone to shut up (or to shut them
up) but they would have to be pretty amazingly rude at that point.
I think existing communication technologies (/ignore, mailfilters, etc.)
provide sufficient mechanisms for selective ostracization.
Is ostracization a word?
